's also something going on in the united states but in the united states that process takes on a much different context, and the main reason for that is that in the u.s. you have universal white male suffrage by 1820 unlike in europe where it is france and the 1870s and other countries later on, in the u.s. you have basically full mass democracy very early on and you have it before most immigrants he show up, so when the immigrants begin to be integrated into american society and particularly when they begin to be integrated into american politics, they're being integrated into a much different world than are those immigrants that we talked about in europe. so what i want to do today is talk about how the united states begins to develop a plurist philosophy, a pleuralist vision and i want to trace the roots back to the way politics worked in 19th century america. i have here just to give you a sense of the kind of politics we're talking about, an image from harper's weekly in 1858, around election time or just after election time, in 1858 and shows a saloon and a polling place. they d
the united states and europe remain each other's best parkhurst and that when the american president or european leader looks how the public and says pudu one call when there's a problem of the person on the other side of the cleantech. my judgment is that is not going to change anytime soon partly because of the affinity of interest of the values and also there aren't other options and even though there are emerging countries out your waist count on our european allies and to rely on our european allies more than we can count on a cost-cutting. at the same time i think it's clear that we are at the cusp of a major historic transition in the global landscape in which the world that nato represents his losing the primacy it enjoyed the last 200 years and if you look at the share of global product represented by nato and i would include japan because they are a part of the western world since world war ii we've gone from roughly 70% of the global product to 50% and we are headed towards 40% and that says to me the big security question of the day are about how we are going to manage th
disruptive not only in a conflict can be destructive to the united states but other countries as well and that is one of the things about military operations in cyberspace with cascading effect that are hard to predict. we have concerns about this and this is why we created joint military platforms like a strategic security dialogue to talk about issues that we feel our potential for friction in the u.s./china relationship. cyber is one of those areas. we don't talk about space, nuclear and missile defense areas as part of the strategic dialogue. >> you mentioned last year spending was almost double what the public acknowledgment was. what things will you give us as examples that they are spending on this year? you did not speculate on the number but what they are spending on this year but not publicly acknowledged? >> we think their nuclear force modernization occurs and research and development money that goes through their defense industry we also think is from a different budget, a different account. some foreign acquisitions come from a different account as well and some local co
to advance of the work of the -- initiative that benefits the united states national security. at the end of my term, i will look forward to new opportunities to serve indiana had to serve our nation. i will embrace projects where i can deliver the most benefits. i will continue to support the program in any way that i can. i also want to build on my work related to nutrition and energy issues, both locally and globally. i've no regrets about running for reelection. all of us should believe in the inability of standing before the public and asking -- of the nobility of standing before the public and asking for their votes. i still counsel young citizens to consider elective public office and i hope some listening to me tonight will do just that. serving the people of indiana in the united states and it has been the greatest honor of my public life. hoosier's deserve the best representation possible. they deserve legislators who will listen to their entire spectrum of citizen views and work to achieve consensus. they deserve legislators to go to work speaking about how they can solve probl
states. hispanic children are at the highest level of poverty in the history of the united states. i think the challenge is not how to bring them over to immigration reform or dialogue. just to make sure the latino community knows these facts and understands the failure of president obama. >> i agree with you there is a lot of ammunition. these comments about self deportation have indicated to some in the community he does not have respect for them. go to south texas and talk to latino ranch and farm owners and small businesses and members of the hispanic community. they are hard asses because they are the first to feel the adverse affect. cartels are shooting at them. are competing for jobs. there are a lot of reasons why they are hard asses but they do want to know the presidential candidate has respect for the community and in recognition this is not all a mexican problem. half the people here illegally came from hong kong the, nigeria on a visa and overstating it. the fact that all the people from central america are unworthy is a real problem. >> thank you. >> we will get behind
information on the breaking news story, the united states with the help of allies foils a terrorist plot to bomb an air liner and an in-depth look at the key issues in the 2012 presidential election and president obama's report card on i am gags. plus, exactly six months from now, a new polling shows an incredibly tight race and the romney and obama campaign confront a pair of tough questions. >> we start with dramatic breaking use. new information coming in by the minute on a new terror plot foiled by the united states and its allies. it is said to involve putting a suicide bomber aboard an air liner. it was foiled and the u.s. recovered and is now studying the explosive device. let's bring in fran townsend who was president bush's homeland security advisor and also with us tom fuentes. fran, i want to go to you first. from your sources with he are hearing that this was an upgrade if you will. do you remember the underwear bomber, that this was a way to upgrade the technology into an ie d and explosive device. what do you know? >> just speaking to a senior administration official t
in existence since the since congress of the united states, was thrown out the window. and as a result, our secured creditors, it happened to be not just teachers, but -- i'm sorry, not just police officers, but retired teachers here in indiana, had their property ripped away from them. in an unprecedented way. and in that case, i did file a lawsuit. we went to the united states supreme court, first time they failed to take the case, the second time we went back, they ultimately ruled in our favor by vacating the earlier court's decision. >> is the auto bailout of 2010 different than when chrysler got bailed out and dick lukerr luge was part of the 1978 bailout, i think it was in 1978, was that a different situation? >> yeah, it was a totally different situation in the financial structure of the deal. there the united states government stepped in to offer loan guarantees. in this case, in the chrysler and ultimately the gm case, as well, although indiana was not involved in the gm bankruptcy, it was a totally different deal. because secured creditors, and not to go too much in the weeds, bu
in the united states senate for 36 years. especially during the last ten years, he's really lost touch with the people of indiana. a big issue that came up in the race is that he not physically -- physically had not had a residence in indiana since 1977. during the midst of this campaign, he actually filed a lawsuit to make the legal argument, you can't make me live in indiana. you know, hoosiers were very offended by that. over the several weeks after he filed that lawsuit, it was -- i could feel it, like a shock wave going across indiana. hoosiers are pretty simple people. we like to know who represents us, we like to know that they share our values. they want to eat an ear of corn with us at the county fair, have a chicken dinner somewhere along the way, and i think mr. lugar separated himself especially from hoosier republicans in that regard. >> mr. mourdock, i want to get your reaction to what senator lugar had to say in a statement. if mr. mourdock is elected, i want him to be a good senator. but that will require him to revise his stated goal of bringing more partisanship to wa
bombs so they understand the target and they're a close ally of the united states and this administration official stressed to me that this really was an international effort although they also stress that this bomb never made it to their knowledge near an airport or an airplane prior to coming into their possession as far as their investigation has shown, and it was never a threat to the united states, so that means one of two things to me, john. either this was an early stage, this bomb plot, or it may have been made inneither by the u.s. or a security service which is why they wouldn't fear it detonating. >> an intelligence success in keeping it from either being able to be used or keeping the bomber from buying a particularet and getting on a plane, whatever, and the question now is if they were developing this new technology what is it capable of and what have they learned? here is what the fbi says tonight. as a result of close cooperation with our security and intelligence partners overseas, annum proceed iz voo the explosive device designed to carry out a t
flight coming into the united states. that was foiled two weeks ago. the investigation is still unfolding. a short time ago we heard from white house chief adviser or counterterrorism. the big question how worried should we be that this bomb and others like it would not be detected by current safeguards. >> this i.ed was a threat from the standpoint of the design we've been able to determine and so now we're trying to make sure that we take the measures that we need to to prevent any other type of ied from getting through security procedures. >> so will ramped up vigilance mean new security measures again for u.s. travelers? a former assistant director of the fbi is in washington. good morning, tom. >> good morning, carol. >> a lot of people are about to board airplanes, are they safe? >> i think they're no safer than they were before all of this happened. the second thing i would like to add is there's nothing new in any of this. richard reid got on airplane with explosives similar undetected. the underwear bomber undetected boarding an airplane in amsterdam bound for the united states.
to see the united states senate taking a more conservative track. >> even high school is not off limits. >> i did some stupid things in high school, and if i hurt anyone, i am sorry and apologize for it. >> lawmakers still at it. voters in europe trigger a political tsunami. >> money flows like water, and if the dam breaks some place, it could flood, even here in america. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> vice president joe biden has acquired a reputation as a person afflicted with foot-in- mouth disease. on last sunday's "meet the press," he said that gay marriage is fine with him. >> i'm comfortable with the fact that man marrying men, women marrying women, are entitled to the same rights. >> that caused a major flat amid the chattering classes, and by midweek, in an interview with robin roberts, the president suggested joe biden had jumped the gun. >> he got out a little bit over his skis. >> the president says he had already made the decision to come out in favor of gay marriage before the democratic national convention in north carolina in septemb
for the absolute, full, and complete end of slavery. you know, every slave in the united states immediately. and the people who are very active in this movement are often devout protestants, blacks and whites, men and women, people from all parts of the united states. but we must always remember that this is a small number of people. this was never a mainstream movement. this was never a mass movement. and students from our perspective today -- you know, when we look back at this, we would say, well, of course slavery should end. of course slavery should be abolished. you know, all thinking adults today would agree on that. and slavery is illegal everywhere now. the last country to abolish slavery was actually saudi arab arabia, which abolished slavery in 1962. 1962, not 1862. so it's been a long, hard struggle. but slavery is illegal now everywhere. but to say these things in the 1830s and '40s and '50s took a lot of courage. this took a lot of guts. this is not mainstream opinion. this is going against mainstream opinion. these people are at the cutting edge of reform. these people are in
of the united states own words ratified 10 months before the ratification stated the following key investments were required to sustain a safe, secure and effective nuclear arsenal. quote funding the chemistry and met lurgy replacement project at loss almos laboratory to replace the 50-year-old chemistry research facility in 2021. in order to sustain a safe nuclear stockpile, the united states must possess a modern physical infrastructure comprised of the national security laboratories and a complex of supporting facilities, again the president's words, implementation of stockpile stewardship program and nuclear infrastructure investments redded in npr will allow the united states to shift away from obtaining large numbers of nuclear weapons. the president went to the senate and requested new start approval ratification, he made a commitment to accelerate the construction of these facilities, identifying them again as required and essential for us to be able to reduce to the levels that are proposed in new start and for our ability to maintain our nuclear deterrent. the president in the 1251 p
with intelligence services friendly to the united states. this case has raised a lot of issues all over again about our airline security, about how strong al qaeda still is these days, and about how many more of these could be out there. it's where we begin tonight with our justice correspondent pete williams in our washington newsroom. pete, good evening. >> brian, by all accounts, this is a remarkable success for the intelligence agencies of the united states and its allies. and here's why, they managed to insert a critical informant into the very heart of the terror group that's considered the number one threat to the united states. al qaeda's offshoot in yemen. administration and intelligence officials say by the time this most recent plot was in its final planning stages, the u.s. and its allies were able to follow it in detail. but the terrorists in yemen did not know at the time these officials say is that the person they chose to be the suicide bomber was actually an informant. someone who agreed to cooperate with an allied intelligence service. members of congress declined to be specific b
a letter, about the obama administration is allowing children who are not citizens of the united states to come across the border into your state unlawfully? >> about 80% of all of these unaccompanied minors are coming in across texas border. you go back and illegal immigration has been an issue for many years here. compounded by the drug cartels realizing that the mexican u.s. border they could operate without impunity. they have operational control on some sides of the border. we have 23 citizens in mexico most likely, i don't know if they have been identified yet, cartel battle going on there. you have the illegal immigration issue and compound it with the drug cartels. then a new phenomenon we are seeing now. this is within the last six months or so. we've seen 5200 unaccompanied young people, we're talking to 8 to 9-year-olds that are coming from south america and we don't know all the details yet about how mexico is dealing with this. they are coming to the texas border and crossing the border. and taking them into refugee resettlement, vast majority we had 1400 of them in just in
't dream. my mother believed and my father believed that if i wanted to be president of the united states, i could be. i could be vice president. my mother and father and believed that if my brother and sister wanted to be a millionaire, they could be a millionaire. my mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams. >> absolutely. >> any don't get it! they don't get who we are. >> good morning. it's thursday, may 17th. >> who was that? >> that was the vice president of the united states. >> i don't get it. >> what do you mean you don't get it? >> i don't get who they are. i'm joking. of course, i get who joe is. >> i get who joe is. >> i am joe. joe is me. >> yes, you are. >> all right. >> you're confused. >> i'm back we have. we have jim cramer on the set running into 30 rock this morning scurrying around in circles going where is the "wall street journal." he looked like he needed a fix. >> mike, you hung out with baseball on us last night. >> baseball owners and bob bowman and who we were talking about who created and developed mlb-tv, which is just spectacular. >> spectacula
on one thing. when you leave the east coast of the united states, you can drive for miles from state to state and not see another black face. call to montana, utah, parts of oregon and washington -- there are lots of african americans in this country but there are parts where there are none. on the broader issue, that is certainly true. the president has done a lot for not just african americans but for everyone in the country. the health-care bill, the stimulus package. we were losing 800,000 jobs a month. the shift has been helpful for everyone. you cannot count on the all.dent to do with allit you have to start a small business and take the risk of willing to fail. there are conditions that exist, but government cannot solve all those problems. they have to be solved at the committee level. host: teresa is a republican from trenton, new jersey. caller: hi. i was listening -- i really love you. you're a great democratic strategist and i love your opinions and have you correct other people and bring them back to what the heart of the problem is. thank you for that. in order for us t
, from all over the united states. not just from states with big slave populations, which is what we might expect, but even in free states. in states where slavery had been abolished during a revolution or soon after the revolution there was still a lot of criticism. and we must remember that the past is different from the present. we must remember that the whole spectrum of political opinion is completely different from what it is today. many of the presidents are themselves slave owners. and the president of the united states in the 1830s was a very wealthy slave owner, andrew jackson. we talked about that in an earlier lecture. and jackson denounced abolitionists. he said they were dangerous, they were incendiaries, they were trying to harm the united states, they were trying to harm american society. so this is something that is a hard fight for abolitionists in this generation. and the 19th century has been called by historians the century of emancipation because this fight takes place in many different societies. and it's a hard fight everywhere. and everywhere slave owners fig
of the united states thinks this is an important thing and he wanted to affirm it. then on top of that, if we ever have something go to the supreme court, i think it will be very important what the highest office holder in our land thinks about same-sex marriage as well as the polling, as well as how many states have legalized it. we like to pretend that the supreme court lives in a bubble but they do not. those justices live among us. >> woodruff: kerry eleveld, thank you very much. >> thank you. we get two views now on the president's announcement and its significance. evan wolfson is the president and founder of freedom to marry, a leading organization seeking to legalize same-sex marriage in states around the country. and the reverend harry jackson is senior pastor of hope christian church in beltsville, maryland, presiding bishop of the international communion of evangelical churches, and an outspoken opponent of gay marriage. reverend jackson, what does it mean to you what the president said? >> well, i believe he's been dealing with this for a long time and the motivation was to ramp u
is now appealing to president obama to get his family out. he wants to go to the united states and he's even said to president barack obama in the interview we have with him, please president barack obama, do everything you can to get me out of this country. >> it's apparent he's had a change of heart. >> reporter: he was very explicit. >> well, i understand. he says he wants to leave this country and he's in fear of his life. >> we need to first have that conversation with him and we need to make sure what his desires are and we'll take that up and start discussing that. we need to explore all of the options. >> reporter: ambassador locke was by chen's side every step of the way as he left the embassy. time and again he told me this was chen's own decision. >> and we said what is your choice? what do you want to do? are you ready to leave and we just stopped, and then two minutes later he jumped up beaming, excited, happy and says let's go. >> reporter: chen guangcheng remains in his hospital bed. his wife and children alongside him, but they fear being sent back to their village whe
the retreat of nathaniel banks' army during the red river campaign of 1864, spring of 1864, the united states army had left a large amount of baggage and equipage. and the family went out and recovered this. amongst it were two civil war tents. one of those tints was a sibley tent, designed by henry hopkins sibley. it's based on a plains indian tepee pattern. the family had had these tents in their possession since recovering at that point in time. one of them's a wall tent, and then this is the sibley tent. remarkably, it is now known there are only two sebly tents in the american civil war in existence in the world. one in each hemisphere of mother earth. this one is in our hemisphere and in possession of the american people now. this tent in recent negotiations with the smithsonian institute will be traveling to washington for potential display at the national african-american museum in the civil war exhibit of the african-american experience in the civil war. so that we're excited about that. the conservation and the exhibition of tents is very difficult. they're quite large. this is a hu
bound for right here in the united states. cnn national security contributor fran townsend is in new york. the fbi has the bomb, what do we know about it, what are they looking for? >> first what they're looking for, one, is it petn, the same high explosive odorless that can be put in a putty used both with in the underwear bomber, abdulmutallab and the cargo plot. and so all those bombs were made by al asiri, in the process in the last few years of training others to make such bombs. can they link this back to him they want to know. is it the same explosive petn. second, one is the detonation device? we've heard over and over the detonation device in the underwear bomber is what failed to let his bomb explode. did they improve that? there have been some different things done to this particular device, and they will really analyze the detonation piece to see whether or not they believe this would have been successful. those are the two keys, what they're looking for. john, sources said to me, there's a debate whether or not they'll release the photographs of the bomb. they have them
? >> look, i am vice president of the united states of america. the president sets the policy. i am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, heterosexual men and women marrying, are entitled to the same rights, all the sifts -- civil rights and liberties. >>shepard: analysts suggest the vice president put his foot in mouth and strayed from the white house official position. that was sunday. a day later, monday. the secretary of education endorsed same-sex marriage. the next day, yesterday, a poll was released showing a majority of americans now support gay marriage. 48 percent don't. last night in north carolina republicans turned out in full force to vote for the state's ban on gay marriage. that ban was expected to pass but it passed with a whopping 61 percent of the vote. democrats were pressing president obama to do what in other president has done before. and that is backing gay marriage. now context. tonight, the president is at an event on the west coast with a lot of gay marriage undertones. there is another fundraiser tomorrow. with
. >> 10 years ago, the united states and our allies went to war to make sure that al qaeda could never again use this country to launch attacks against us. despite initial success, for a number of reasons, this war has taken longer than most anticipated. in 20 02, osama bin laden and his lieutenants established safe haven across the bordener pakistan. america spent nearly 8 years fighting a different war in iraq. and al al qaeda's extremist alls have waged a brutal insurgency. but over the last 3 years, the tide has turned. we broke the taliban's momentum. we built strong afghan security forces. we devastated al qaeda's leadership, taking out over 20 of their top 30 leaders. one year ago, from a base here in afghanistan, our troops launched the operation that killed osama bin laden. >> sean: here with reaction to the surprise presidential trip, a former bush adviser, karl rove. welcome back, sir. >> thank you, sean. thanks for having me. >> sean: i don't have a problem with the president going to afghanistan. i don't want to talk about his -- his trip in terms of politics. but his ad a
you have gone on "60 minutes" after the slaughter of 3,000 americans and say, the united states and their policies were an accessory to what happened? i have the tape -- i can show the tape. let's roll it. >> i wouldn't say that the united states deserved what happened. but the united states' policies were an accessory to the crime that happened. >> you can say we are an accessory? >> yes. >> how? because we have been accessory to a lot of innocent lives... dying in the world. in fact, in the most direct sense, osama bin laden is made in the usa. >> sean: osama bin laden -- you are blaming us?! with that statement? you are blaming america! for the 3,000 dead americans. >> sean, i regret saying that. you know, we need to -- i offer forgiveness and ask to be forgiven. >> sean: why have you never said that? >> i have. i have said that. >> sean: i have never said that. >> i said that on cnn. i did say that was a devastating thing to say and i am sorry for having said that. >> sean: i appreciate that. >> again, the thing that has caused this is our common enemy, extremism. we have to
. as a result each of our nations, the united states included, more secure and we are in a stronger position to advance the security and prosperity and freedom we seek. with that, i will take a couple of questions and i will start with julie pace. >> thank you, mr. president. you have said the united states cannot deal with afghanistan without also talking about pakistan. and yet this is little public discussion at this summit about pakistan's role in ending the war. your talks with the president did you make any presidents in re-opening this discussion and if the larger tension with pakistan cannot be resolved does that put the nato coalition gains in afghanistan at risk? >> my discussion with the president was very brief as we were walking into the summit. and, i emphasized to him what we have emphasized publicly, as well as privately, we think that pakistan has to be part of the solution in afghanistan. that it is in our national interests to see a pakistan that is democratic. that is prosperous and stable the we share a common enemy in extremists that are found not only in afghanistan bu
and on jobs and what they see in the united states senate today led by democrats is something that you mentioned earlier and that is the fact that we budget inssed a put in three three years. it has become dysfunctional and more recently a place where the presidential campaign has sort of been litigated. they moved the presidential campaign to the floor of the united states senate. we continue to have votes nothing about political messaging. talking about the buffett tax rule and the interest rate on student loans which needs to be addressed but they want to do it in a way that republicans can't support. the reason it is not functioning today is because it has been converted into something that is about political gimmicks rather than about involving problems. the people run aring across the country are talking about spending, they are talking about debt and jobs and talking about the economy which are all things on the hearts and minds of the american people and we need people to come to washington who are are serious about addressing those challenges. many of us in the united states
the united states survive if half the country is getting some kind of check from the government? we have new stats that show 49.1%, almost 50% of the u.s. is getting government assistance in some form. eric, it's troubling, because this is the way that greece went. right? now, the question if you read the story a little bit more, it says families are becoming multigenerational. a lot of people are doubling up and moving home with their parents. grandparents are moving in with them. they say the "wall street journal," even if it wasn't happening because of the recession people would be getting more check from the government. >> eric: any way you slice it. look at the chart from the lower left to the upper right. chart is going up. president obama blast the right side of the chart right there. things aren't getting better. no matter what you hear on tv or how many times the president takes a victory lap saying it's better when we took over. it's not. if you look at that number, stood stamps up 4% from when he took over. $80 billion of food stamps, for americans on food stamps. more americans i
% of consumption in the united states, the lion's share of that, 45% of total consumption was in passenger vehicles and light-duty trucks. what do we do about that gas guzzling that is going on? the thing we do is to look at how we can change how many miles to the gallon we get. and two, -- and to the president's credit, his administration has put in place these new standards, known to all of us as cafe standards that will double the u.s. efficiency of fleet of automobiles averaging a fleet-wide average of 54.5 miles per gallon by the year 2025. what does that do once we get there in 2025? that means we as consumers will save $1.7 trillion at the pump over the life of the program. a family that purchases a new vehicle in 2025 will save $8,200 in fuel costs when compared with a similar vehicle in 2010. so the life of the program, the standard will save 12 billion barrels of oil and eliminate 6 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide pollution. the solutions are there for us. the solutions are we move to these cafe standards and address the issues around speculation and we keep the robust doing that is
and concluded after extensive public notice and comment by adopting the guidelines that the united states access board developed in 2004 during the george bush administration. certain members of the hotel industry have claimed that the regulations require all owners to require fixed lifts and this is costly and burdensome and owners who can't afford it will have to shut down their pools or face penalties. these claims are false. as required by congress, the justice department has increased access to newly existing pools, rules that have been under development for almost 15 years. new pools must be built with either a sloped entry into the pool or a pool lift under these new rules. for existing pools, owners will have to do what is readily achievable based on the size and resource of the owner's business. if it is readily achievable which is defined as easily accomplished to be carried out, a business should take the same steps to improve an existing pool. this means that if a fixed lift can be installed easily and inexpensively, it should be. if installing a fixed lift is too expensive or diffic
, but always, is that a woman who emigrates to the united states using a service like this can end up dependent for her immigration status in this country on the american man to whom she has just been married for a fee. and if that man starts beating her up, a woman can kind of be trapped. you don't want to stay with the abusive guy who bought her hand on the internet, but if she leaves, she may get forted. that's the choice, stay with the man who's beating you or get deported. to help women out of that disgusting and dangerous trap, there is a program by which women who are being abused and whose immigration status depends on being married to their abuser, those women can in a low-key way without tipping off the guy who is beating them, they can apply for legal immigration status in this country that's unconnected to the abusive husband. it is a special visa program under the violence against women act. republicans in washington are right to roll that back. the violence against women act was first passed almost 20 years ago. when he was in the senate, vice president joe biden wrote the origina
and they will continue to work hard to inflict damage to the united states. fortunately, our intelligence community and the c.i.a. have their eyes on the ball in yemen and it's a great success what they were able to do in the last 24 hours. >> warner: michael leiter, let me ask you, when john brenner said today "this i.e.d. was a threat from the standpoint of the design," what is he talking about? >> well, this bomb and also the bomb that the bomb maker asiri is probably responsible for back in 2009, the first underwear bomb and then the printer cartridges bombs that were detected in 2010 represent a real challenge for screening. with no metal pieces at all, a standard magnetometer, metal detector, won't detect that. so what you have to have instead are much more advanced screening techniques at airports to find that. fliers see that all the time here in the united states now. they're less prevalent overseas. of course we need to make sure the same techniques that we know are working here are applied overseas as well. what i would also add, margaret, is none of these detection methods are perfect.
